Dora Really Sucks at Riding Jack-a-lopes

Dora and I went for a ride around WALL DRUG, South Dakota one day.

ME: Dora, look at that pack of cute foreign dudes over there
Dora: I hope we see some lizards today.
Me: You would want to see something so stupid.

Just then, our Jack-a-Lope tried bucking us off.

And Dora fell.

kids
Little Girl: Mommy, why is Dora with that lady?
Mom: Because that lady probably wants to be a Mommy like me, but can’t find a husband because she’s a tomboy. That’s why little girls should play with the dolls their Mommies buy them and not their brother’s dumptrucks, right Mackenzie?
Little Girl: Right, Mommy.

me
Me (to Dora): Why do you have to embarass me everywhere we go? I mean, even a kid could ride a jack-a-lope

Dora: But I am a kid.
Me: Shut it.

  1. it weirds me out did i mean to say tickles me pink that i have the same lope photos but my dora was a real chick

  2. Who takes these pictures?

    • melaniehamlett

      the poor suckers I talk into taking them. that or I run back and forth with and set the timer. it can take minutes or hours depending on the cooperation of the public. :-)

  3. This is perhaps my favorite entry so far, not only because I, too, have ridden said Jackalope, but because the response from the general public is all to familiar.

    Keep it up, Lady. Your stories brighten every day on which they are posted!
